Topic: Gaza rocket hits Israel, first time since Palestinian unity government formed


Militants in the Gaza Strip fired a rocket into Israel on Wednesday for the first time since a Palestinian unity government was formed, prompting strong Israeli condemnation of President Mahmoud Abbas. After past rocket attacks, Israel has said it holds Hamas, which has ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007, responsible, and frequently responds with air strikes on militant positions there. Israel gave no indication it planned to take any punitive action against Abbas's West Bank-based Palestinian Authority, and there was no immediate claim of responsibility for the rocket strike, which caused no casualties or damage.
